Here at DeSantis Jewelry, we strive to make each and every necklace one of a kind and adjustable so there is a necklace for everyone. Like most of our jewelry, its all about the gemstones and the design that goes with it. In our necklaces the loops are all hand soldered and handmade to give a personal touch to each piece. There are many options for attaching necklaces such as lobster claw attachments, toggles and loops, and sometimes a handmade hook that perfectly connects to a larger loop.
Peridot is the term used to describe gem-quality olivine. Olivine is a somewhat abundant mineral but gem-quality peridot is rather rare. Peridot is one of the only gems that is found in only one color, usually an olive green. The color of peridot is determined by the iron content of the gem and the highest valued peridot usually is distinguished by a dark green color. Peridot is also one of the only gemstones found in meteorites. The United States is currently one of the biggest suppliers of peridot with much of its deposits found in Arizona. Peridot jewelry can be worn to symbolize the birth month of August. It is believed that this gemstone brings the wearer success, peace, and goodluck.
